The Young Folk (IRE)

The Young Folk are hardly a strict folk outfir, they acknowledge their folky infuences and assert youthful personality with a self-composed alt-folk-pop.

Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, and having spent the last couple of years touring Europe, Australia, Scandinavia, USA, New Zealand, performed at SXSW in Texas, Milwaukee Irish Fest, Eurosonic in The Netherlands, Kansas City Folk Festival, Celtic Connections amongst many others.

Their sophomore album, First Sign of Morning (2017), has received strong reviews across Europe, including plays on BBC Radio 2, and quotes such as ‘intoxicating voices, punctuating, warm harmonies that illuminate the horizon of a fiery energy’ (Pause Musicale, France).

Ireland’s President Michael D. Higgins ranks as a notable fan, organising TYF for multiple performances at his official residence on numerous occasions.
